Had to turn it off!
31 March 2013 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Being a fan of British film making and gangster related films I looked forward to watching. You would have more fun watching paint dry in my opinion. The best part for me was when I turned it off! What the hell were they thinking having Tulisa from N Dubz appear!? I would like to know if anyone actually enjoyed watching and if the cast were that desperate for money that they threw their self respect and reputations away to be a part of it! I would have liked to rate this film a -10 but the option isn't there. Very disappointing considering some of the actors involved. A few actors played their parts well but on the whole the plot, direction and awful humor made me loose interest in the first 10 minutes. Big fat gypsy gangster? More like Big Fat load of rubbish.
